Are you looking at something in real life that you are unable to identify? Maybe you know what it is, but not sure to say it in a certain language?

So if you run into something you cannot wrap your head around, this app will identify it for you.

Besides identifying pictures, this app also supports a lot of languages which can help you figure out what to call it in another language. So if you know that an object is a chair, but you cannot figure out how to say chair in another language, this app can tell you. It supports over 40 languages, so the chances are great that the language you are trying to find is available. The translations are provided by Google Translate, so you know they are accurate.

You can export your translated and identified words to Evernote or Google Drive. It also has support for text to speech. This app is like an awesome mix of Shazam and a translator for Android. It is definitely worth checking out. One thing to note is the first two translations are free, but after that, you will have to purchase them with in-app purchases.
